First GlobCurrent User Consultation Meeting in Plymouth (UK)

The GlobCurrent project held its first User Consultation Meeting in Plymouth, UK on 12-13 November 2014. This was the first time since 2012 that many of its users had gathered. Discussions centered on the four ocean current components (geostrophic, Ekman, Stokes, and tidal) that were circulated as part of the project’s initial data offering. The event provided an opportunity to consider the various contexts in which the definition, exploitation, and validation of surface current components are relevant. This event was also the first opportunity for the consortium to receive guidance on the priorities of its user community. A number of key recommendations were collected, mainly focusing on the need for more processing information and application guidance. Everyone took advantage of the opportunities to interact and were shown the best of the venue. Also captured on video (to come) were the goals and aspirations of key members of both the consortium and ESA.
